Community Biodiversity Management: Promoting resilience and the conservation of plant genetic resources

de Boef, Walter Simon, Abishkar Subedi, Nivaldo Peroni, Marja Thijssen and Elizabeth O'Keeffe (eds.) (2013):
Community Biodiversity Management: Promoting resilience and the conservation of plant genetic resources
(Abingdon, UK: Routledge)


Summary

This book is about an approach to in situ conservation of biodiversity referred to as community biodiversity management (CBM). It argues that CBM contributes to the empowerment of farming communities to manage their biological resources and make informed decisions on the conservation and use of agrobiodiversity. CBM is shown to be a key strategy that promotes community resilience, and contributes to the conservation of plant genetic resources. The authors present the underlying concepts and theories of CBM as well as its methodology and practices, and introduce case studies primarily from Brazil, Ethiopia, France, India, and Nepal. Contributors include farmers, leaders of farmers’ organizations, professionals from conservation and development organizations, students and scientists.
